Shh! Facebook Is Secretly Creating A New Professional Website
To take on LinkedIn and other professional networking sites, Facebook is rumored to be starting its own professional site.
“Facebook is secretly working on a new website called ‘Facebook at Work'” that would allow users to “chat with colleagues, connect with professional contacts and collaborate over documents,” reports the Financial Times. Facebook’s some 8,348 employees are testing it out, reports Business Insider.
The rumors started way back in June. It was then that TechCrunch reported that Facebook was creating a product called “Facebook at Work.” And it seems it’s nearly ready to roll out the product. There is not much known about the venture, but “Facebook at Work” would be hosted separately from private Facebook.
“The new enterprise collaboration tool will look a lot like your personal Facebook page with a News Feed, Messenger and Groups, but it would be completely separate from your personal Facebook, so there would be no danger whatsoever that the two would ever bleed into one another. That means, no work content would ever appear in your personal feed and no personal content would ever appear in your work feed, a level of privacy that would be absolutely essential for all parties to trust it,” reported TechCrunch yesterday.
